A strange letter, from a strange hand, by a strange messenger; without date to it, name at it, and (I had almost said) sense in it. A letter which, even when it was opened, was still sealed such the affected obscurity therein. --Thomas Fuller

Most life-like portraits are those which represent the very heart of the painter and not of the sitter; and knowing that the obvious test of a newly discovered portrait is its history or pedigree, we may justify how the great collector of Shakespearian relics, Halliwell-Phillipps, without a pedigree, would not look at any article, and another noted scholar, Dr. F. J. Furnivall, refused to consider any portrait that could not be traced to Shaksperâs family or intimate friends.

Delia was a cultured, finely educated American teacher. Emerson was greatly impressed with her ideas and gave her letters to friends in England, but when she presented her arguments to these English people, she was treated with scorn and ridicule that eventually broke her heart.

Dr. Grosart had stated that with one possessed of so strenuous a nostril for scenting out such carrion gossip as Gabriel Harvey, ignorant of that tragic end, one may well question if ever it were true. Was Marlowe's death contributed to a fatal brawl at the Deptford tavern, or a government assassination?

One main object of this volume is to set forth the power, beauty, wealth, and wit of language that Francis Bacon possessed, ever since Dr. Samuel Johnson refreshed the English language with sparkling drops of the future when he said: âA Dictionary of the English language might be compiled from Baconâs works alone.â
